I usually do a major upgrade every 3-4 years.
In the past 2.5 years I did a few major upgrades back to back to my main rig since it didn't cost me that much.
Started with a P4 3.4Ghz, 2GB, X1950Pro
Core2duo E8400, 4GB, 9800GT
Swapped the E8400 for a Core2Quad 9400.
Sold the Q9400 and 9800GT and bought a Q6600 and GTX260
added 4GB more ram for a total of 8GB
upgraded the GTX260 to a GTX285
Sold the GTX285 and got an HD5850
Sold the Q6600/mobo/4GB DDR2 800 ram and bought the corei7 870, mobo, 8GB DDR3
Sold the original 8GB of ram from the Q6600 setup which was DDR2 1066.
